During the International Anime Fair in Toykyo last week, Behemoth was on had to demo it’s “third game” to the masses. Which means more details on the nameless co-op platformer have popped up.

Apparently, it contains at least four mini-games. Details are as follows:

  • It has a block painting game. As players run around the play-field, they turn any blocks they touch to their own color. The goal is to do this for more blocks than your rival. You don’t have to do anything to the blocks to change their color — just walk over them or bump into them from the side or below.
  • One mode is a soccer game. Players attempt to knock a soccer ball into a goal. This is done by simply bumping into the ball or punching it.
  • You can collect coins. There’s a giant goldfish floating about the stage. When struck, it releases gold. The goal is to collect as much of the gold as possible.
  • Harvesting souls is another. In this mini game, when an enemy is defeated, his soul floats away. Collect an opponent’s soul, and you get big points. If you lose your soul, you can chase after it once you’ve respawned, assuming it hasn’t already been taken.

The demo was on Xbox 360. It’s being speculated that a PC version will be released as well, but not a PSN entry.

Behemoth has yet to announce which platforms the title will hit.
